Project 17- Together We Succeed

We have some exciting news to share today! For the past eight years, Flat Aggie's travel has been coordinated by Nicole Small (A Kansas Farm Mom) and a year later she was joined by Katie Pratt (The Illinois Farm Girl). They are thinking things need a fresh new look and Hannah Graybill a Kansas FFA member will be the first Flat Aggie intern of sorts. She will be coordinating visits, communicating with teachers and posting the reports online.

She needs your help! If you are interested in hosting Flat Aggie, please send an email to flataggie@gmail.com. It is best to include what month you are most interested in hosting Flat Aggie, your state and what you have to show the kids.

If you are a teacher who uses Flat Aggie or wants to use the lessons, please email her with your state, grade level and number of students. She is using this for a project and would really like to be able to keep a few stats about what she is doing and who she is reaching. If you sign up, she will send you an email once a month with farmer reports, farm math problems and additional activities you can include.

If you are someone who LOVES the Flat Aggie Agventures, please share this with your teacher friends and anyone who would be a great host! Thanks!
